Help! What has gone wrong? Divs and tables shifting to show incorrectly

Hello everybody! I'm stuck again, what would i do without you good people?  Wink
I have been making a new layout for my webpage using fixed columns, with 1 sidebar with a menu in, the other sidebar with some more information in.
The main section I have made using AP Divs with a border to put products in, with a table inside it to keep everything neat. Everything was perfect, then I did something... Havent a clue what, but now all my divs are showing too small when previewed, so the text and images are leaking out and running over each other!
I'm using dreamweaver CS3.
It has also done it with all the pages I have made previously. One of the pages in question is here http://www.concept-data.com/X1024x768.html
PS - The navigation menu is only a placeholder JPG.
Please can someone help me un-screwup? Thanks so much, your all great!
Nicole

oh, thats even weirder! This one is showing incorrectly also -  http://www.concept-data.com/Xcoloursleafletholders.html
I have attached the image of what it *should* look like so you can compare. It seems to have an issue with the bottom of the page with this one.
Thanks again guys,

Both pages look fine to me. Nicely laid out, I think. I wouldn't rely on the preview in web creation software, as they are often a bit limited with anything other than pure html. It is more reliable to see it in a browser.

Agreed..
To the OP, I've found that Dreamweaver will render some material differently if you change the HTML header, have you done this?

No I haven't changed the HTML header, that might be an idea. Can you give me a bit more detail please?
Thanks for all your replies!

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
